  • Name Robert MacNab  [1
    • Among the many lands owned or protected by the Fletchers, MacNabs and related clans, Ardbrecknish (Ardvrecknish), Argyllshire, Scotland (today in the United Kingdom), lies along the south shore of Loch Awe, the longest freshwater loch in Scotland, some distance to the northeast of Glasgow. As one leaves Loch Awe to the north, following along the River Orchy, the Bridge of Orchy is found lying just south of the much smaller Loch Tulla. Nestled just a little north of Loch Tulla is Achallader. And almost due east of Ardbrecknish is Loch Earn, with Ardvorlich on its south shore and Dundurn to the east. Southward lies Callander near Loch Venachar, to the east of which one finds Drumvaich, Doune and Dunblane.
